Slow Rising Tide in LoCo

Dunrobin home

A month ago we wrote about how few listings there were on the market, 660 non new construction homes to be exact. Here we are one month later and we've only climbed to 835 on the multiple listing service. How did we get there? 680 homes have been listed since February 26, with 251 of those currently under contract or already sold. That's … [Read more...]

This LOL Doesn’t Come With a Smile (Lack of Listings)

Broadlands home

Two weeks ago I wrote about the lack of homes on the market, and it got me doing a little more digging. About two years ago Heather wrote something similar for the Washington Post. It's scary to see how close the numbers are: Ashburn Village:  18 now/ 20 then Ashburn Farm: 12 now/ 13 then Broadlands: 10 now/ 20 then Brambleton: 30 … [Read more...]

2013 Year in Review: Greenway Farm

King Street in Leesburg

There must be something special about living in the southwest part of Leesburg. That's my only explanation for the sparse activity in each of the neighborhoods here, including Greenway Farm. Despite over 400 homes it's odd for more than twenty to sell in a year. The 2013 real estate market was a bit more active than normal, lets take a … [Read more...]

2013 Year in Review: Village Case

Village Case neighborhood

Thought it was time to see how the 2013 real estate market fared for Village Case in Purcellville. Last year we had the privilege of selling the first home built in the neighborhood, sorry to see Rob go but happy for his new start. Let's take a look... The typical home in Village Case has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 2465 square feet and is … [Read more...]

2013 Year in Review: Country Club

Country Club Drive home

Another LoCo neighborhood near and dear to my heart, Country Club is home to many friends from my time at Westpark Golf Club. With an eclectic mix of home styles and sizes, it's not unusual for there to be a $150,000 swing in price from one house to the next. Let's take a look at how the real estate market fared here in 2013... There are so … [Read more...]

lansdownetowncenter-946x338

  Last week when we wrote about homes in the $400,000 price range there were 1500 active listings. Here we are a week later and only 2 more homes are on the market, maybe the weather is slowing things down. If you are searching in the $300,000 price point, you have 59 of the 1502 homes currently on the market from which to choose. (As shown … [Read more...]

Look Back: Sterling Market in 2013

Sterling neighborhoods2

Home to the Dulles Towne Center and Trump National Golf Club, Sterling is one of the oldest towns in LoCo. Many of our friends grew up in Sterling Park, although most say it has changed quite a bit in the last 30 years. Let's take a look at how the real estate market here fared in 2013... The graph above details the 1271 sales of existing … [Read more...]

2013 Year in Review: River Creek

Leesburg Courthouse in Summer

River Creek is one of my favorite golf courses, and we love the wide array of architecture. I've come as close to getting a hole-in-one as you can without the ball going in the hole on #14, and competed in a few MAPGA tournaments there (my personal best is 73). Let's take a look at how the 2013 real estate market fared here... There is … [Read more...]
